#RecycleLebanon January 16, 17 and 23 Beach Clean Up

The first #RecycleLebanon beach clean up event is happening next weekend and we are inviting all the environment initiatives, divers, artists, students, communities and the general public in Lebanon to take part on Saturday the 16th and 23rd and the Sunday 17th of January to clean up the shorelines from Nahr el Kalb between Holiday Beach and Rimal before the next heavy storm takes out more waste into the sea.

Waste will be picked up and recycled by Recycle Beirut, all plastic waste will be recycled by Ziad Abi Chaker of GGRIL. Green Glass Recycling Initiative - Lebanon and Cedar Environmental LLC and tires will be recycled in the South of Lebanon.

Operation Big Blue Association-OBBA and Cedars for Care among other environmental and educational organisations will be joining us for the beach clean up. Radio Beirut will be on site recording the event and sharing the sustainable community across Lebanon.

For participating artists, a pop up art exhibition will be held to showcase creative awareness pieces reflecting sustainable development in Lebanon during Spring 2016.

More details will continue to be announced with regards to transportation services and participating initiatives and public.

This is a community initiative to bring together all stakeholders in the sustainable development of Lebanon. If you are interested in contributing in anyway please reach out.
